Neighbourhood Watch

After many years of coordinating the Watch scheme, David Wood will be stepping down, and the Reverend Ian Parker, and Councillor Ian Topping will take over the duties.  We will be updating the database of registered members, so please keep an eye out for our leaflet.

Speedwatch Volunteers

The Speedwatch group are currently on the lookout for more volunteers to help run the traffic monitoring scheme.  If you are interested or would like to know more, please contact Councillor Ian Topping.

Superfast Broadband

The project is currently running some 14 months behind schedule due to difficulties in routing the fibre to the communities around the Lamplugh exchange.  Current expectation is to have fibre to the street cabinet in Ennerdale by the end of September, barring any unexpected difficulties.  We will post updates as we receive the information
